The Mayor's Transport Strategy Consultation makes no mention of taxis. Are they not an integral part of yours and TfL's plans for London's future transport network?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My draft Transport Strategy does mention taxis, specifically at Policy 18 and Proposals 28, 52, 73 and 74.

I am determined to create a vibrant taxi and private hire market, with space for all providers to flourish. TfL's Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan includes specific new measures to support licensed taxi drivers, and sets out ambitious plans to enhance public safety, and improve London's air quality. This is reflected in my draft Strategy.
